alexandra walkerCongratulations to second grade teacher Alexandra Walker who was recognized as the FCPS 2022 Region 1 Outstanding Elementary Teacher and one of the five finalists for the FCPS Outstanding Elementary Teacher at this year's FCPS Honors event, held at George Mason University Center for the Arts on June 8th.

Alex’s classroom is a place of warmth, nurturing, and acceptance. Alex greets students with a warm hello and asking about last night's soccer game, birthday celebration, or movie night. Whether it is planning a trip around the world to learn the continents, or exploring the butterfly garden to learn about the life cycle of the monarch butterfly, her students connect their learning to the world around them. She believes that schools run best when everyone is a valued and trusted member of the school community. She strives to share her love of teaching with the teacher interns that work in her classroom. A quote that guides her teaching is: “Teach every day as if it’s your first and your last."

Congratulations to the following Sunrise Valley Elementary School staff members who were also recognized at this year's FCPS Honors Ceremony!
